- suggest:  To suggest something is etymologically to ‘carry it under’. It comes from the past participle of Latin suggerere, a compound verb formed from the suffix sub- and gerere ‘carry’ (source also of English digest, gesture, etc). Its meaning evolved via ‘heap up, build’ and ‘furnish a supply’ to ‘bring forward an idea’.
